Product Review: SHAD
ATV 110 Quad Case
SHAD ATV 110 Quad Case easily mounts to
any utility rack.
Anymore, when turning on the television, all
that’s on are those reality TV shows. I’m
not a big fan of the genre, but I admittedly
like watching those wilderness survivor shows –
where the host is forced to make something out
of nothing and to stay alive until being
rescued. As an ATV enthusiast, it makes me
think of the potential remoteness of an ATV trek
and the hardships that may occur from getting
lost or stranded. The key to survival,
learned from my couch potato ways behind the
tube, is being prepared.
That means having and having the right kind of
gear. As riders of utility ATVs, we are
afforded plenty of rack space from all the
manufacturers. Our options are to simply
pile the gear up on the racks or to use a bag or
case, such as SHAD’S ATV 110 Quad Case, to stow
the items. The SHAD ATV 110 offers plenty
of room, 110 liters of true and real capacity,
for those who want to neatly organize their
items in a hard-cased shell. That’s enough
storage to accommodate 3 helmets!
SHAD ATV 110 Quad Case can easily hold
two helmets and have plenty of room for

Started in 1992, as a manufacturer and
distributor of cases for motorcycles in Europe,
SHAD has since expanded their product offerings
to the US ATV market. The SHAD ATV series
of hard-cased products (80 and 110) are fully
manufactured and distributed in the US, while
the 40-liter size is made in Spain.
Providing an aesthetically appealing and
functional appearance, the SHAD ATV 110 Quad
Case features a universal attachment mechanism
(to fit most models), backrest (not to be used
while riding), key and safety latch, and
reflector. An optional luggage rack
accessory is also available.

While I am partial to ATV bags, rather than hard
cases because of the ability to “force” in
irregular-sized items, the SHAD ATV 110 does
offer ample storage. It’s easy to install
and should fit most ATV brands. The hard
case is more resilient to water and will keep
contents dry and dust free. As opposed to
other brands of hard cases, the SHAD ATV 110 has
a short stance, making riding under lower
obstacles easier. Riders may find
accessing items from the rear opening lid, while
relaxing on the backrest during a break, a bit
awkward. Remember, I’m a couch potato that
doesn’t want to walk around to the back of the
ATV to get my snacks.
All-in-all, the SHAD ATV 110 is a very robust
case and will hold-up to the punishments of an
aggressive ATV rider. After, that’s what’s
important when carrying gear. With an MSRP
of $289, 24-month warranty, and product support
– buyers of the SHAD ATV 110 will have a sleek
and stylish storage case that is rugged in its
carrying capacity and durability. The SHAD
ATV 110 does a good job of storing and carrying
the items that keeps an ATV rider prepared for
